    To-do list

    From the To-do list, you can select tasks to read their description and download any resources attached to the task. The To-do List is divided into three different sections: Upcoming, Past, and Overdue.

    On the Upcoming list, you will find any homework with forthcoming deadlines. Once you have completed a homework, check the box beside its title. If you want to view only homework that has not yet been ticked as complete, toggle the switch in the top-right hand corner. 

    On the Past list, you will find homework that you've marked as complete and now their deadline has passed. The Overdue list, will show you any homework that is now past its due date and has not been ticked off yet.
     
     Marked something as completed before you meant to? Not to worry! The To-do list is simply an organisational tool, your teacher will not receive any notifications for this. You can untick the homework task to return it to your Upcoming list.

    If you have a question for your teacher you can leave a comment for them by tapping "Add a comment" at the bottom of the screen.

    Homework submissions

    If your teacher has requested that you submit your homework online, you can do this within the app. Simply upload your homework for online submissions directly from your camera gallery, Dropbox, or Google Drive by clicking the paper clip icon. 

    Thanks for your vote.
